Pics coming tomorrow. The goose looks pretty good but the males could be a bit bigger and bigger dewlaps. I am still happy with them. I really can't believe I have these, I have wanted them for so long.

I am hoping that the goose might still lay a clutch of eggs

, since it is still early in the year. Also thought of not using the gander to the right in the 2nd picture, he seems to stand a bit more upright than the other one. Goose is in center of the 2nd pic.

Your geese are great looking. But more attractive is the fact that I can see the ground in your picture. I'm so sick of having two feet of snow on the ground, not to mention my birds hate it too! It's still snowing today!

I got pic snappy again today:D so here is more pic of the buff dewlaps. Some pics were taken with flash/some not @ different times durring the day so the geese looked washed out in some of the pics.

They are beautiful I have wanted some for so long but I cant decide if I want buff or gray? Are those black swans in the background?

I still want the grays too ! Yes, those are black swans..they are tame as puppies. I just love them too.

My pens are are just wire fencing around about a 60 feet by
150 feet area, then wire fencing divided them into pens, nothing fancy, just to keep separate breeding pens. I have tried to get a pic of it but it is so big it doesn't show any details. I used t-post driven in the ground(or rather pushed in the ground with the bucket on the tractor) to hold up the wire fencing.
